Sor Juana's 'First Dream' at FOMMA (2009)

Video documentation of Jesusa Rodríguez’ interpretation of Sor Juana Inés de al Cruz’ poem ‘Primero sueño,’ performed at Centro Hemisférico at FOMMA, in the city of San Cristóbal de las Casas, Chiapas. Rodríguez performs excerpts of Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz’ 17th century poem, ‘Primero Sueño,’ which the poet confesses was the only poem she ever wrote for pleasure and for herself. As the performer strips away the levels of the poem, she also strips away her clothes, bringing together words and body.
